In this lecture on the need to live in or close to wilderness Dr. Kepner uses the film “Into the Wild” to explore analytically one young man’s desperate attempt to heal a broken psyche through an experience of wilderness. Joseph Campbell’s themes of the archetypal heroic will be explored in light of current, changing conceptions of the archetype. As wilderness disappears, what implications for Soul and psyche resound? How do we sustain our soulful connections to both inner and outer wilderness? What is an inner wilderness? How are inner and outer wilderness connected and in relationship to one another? Or not?
